If you are joining the University in Semester 2 here are some helpful things to get you started with using the Library.
The New Year isn't just about making resolutions for healthy living, it can also be a time to reflect on your academic "health" and ensure you keep on track with advice from Academic Librarian, Kirsty Bower.
Leeds Beckett Academic Librarian Ellie Clement gives us her top 10 tips for writing the perfect assignment.
Just graduated? Planning to stay on for a postgrad course? The Library can help keep your study skills on track.
Whether you've made it through your first semester at university or are halfway through your course, make sure you are ready to deal with any possible 'potholes' along the way.
We know writing essays can be scary so whether you are worried about leaving things to the last minute, finding information or referencing, don't worry there is lots of support available. Library staff will be out and about this Halloween to help calm your fears! And not just for essays - we can help with all your assignment queries.
The Library at Leeds Beckett provides lots of different spaces to help you work together on group assignments, study in silence and more. Find out about our recommended places as we celebrate National Libraries Week with its theme of "My Time. My Space. My Library".
Thank you to everyone who stopped by our Halloween stalls the other day, where our (hopefully not too scary) staff asked you what's the scariest thing about writing essays.
You might think (or hope!) that essay writing was something just for school but lots of university assignments require you to write an essay in some form; defined by Skills for Learning as "an extended piece of writing which attempts to answer a question or respond to a statement".
